Every Knee to Bow, Every Tongue to Confess?

Question: In “Romans 14:11”- It says every tongue shall confess. The word “confess” can mean to “acknowledge openly and joyfully.” I know this is a verse that Universalists share, especially considering that the word “confess” indicates a joyful (not coerced) confession.
